We already have death panels in Montana

I got my brother "Pinky" out here because he was sick. Real sick. Here he was diagnosed with end stage liver disease. He was offered hospice. In Montana he was offered SSI not SSDI with twice the pay. It took 4 months to recieve it. Help from medicade was 40 days down the road.
He was going down hill fast and so was I, I felt like I had let him down and brought him to a bad place.
I talked to my sister in Illinois and we flew him there immediately. She is operations manager for a large clinic in Springfield. His SS was reviewed and he go full SSDI. He got Illinois medicade in 10 days after application in Illinois.
It was literally like he went to another country and it wasn't the U.S.
In Montana they made him go to 7 different doctors visits over a period of 2 and a half months, see 6 different doctors to evaluate him for pain and then refused him pain treatment. They offered him LYRICA. So with liver, bone and lymphnode cancer plus a stack of records from spinal surgery, these chicken shit, wannabe quack assed puppets with over 70 years of education and experience decided he didn't need a fuckin pain pill.

Our medical system SUCKS.
